Communication Studies - Career Information
The communication field offers a great variety of career and job options. You can see a listing of careers in fields related to communication and view sites about careers, resume writing, job-hunting, and internship opportunities for communication studies students.
More and more employers are posting job opportunities on their Web sites. With so many listings, it will be difficult to find exactly what you're looking for, so a good search engine is necessary. One guide that is very helpful is JobStar.
You may be able to hunt by location, salary, job type, and key words. Some search agents, many of which are free, can do the searching for you and e-mail you the results. One popular agent is Personal Job Scout.
Employers are also looking for employees by examining resumes on the Web. By posting your resume on your own Web page or on a job board, you can let others know your credentials.
